Young Tree Pruning Workshop
Saturday, June 10
Join Canopy’s Citizen Pruner Team! In this free, interactive workshop series you’ll learn the art, science, and skill of young tree pruning with Canopy’s Program Director, Michael Hawkins, and other expert arborists.
In the classroom, you will learn what defines “good structure” for a young tree and how to achieve this goal through pruning. You’ll practice assessing individual trees, determining where to cut, and how to make cuts without injuring the tree. In the field, you will have hands-on pruning practice and on-the-spot coaching from skilled arborists.
After attending the workshop, you will be prepared to join our dynamic team of Citizen Pruners that help maintain young trees throughout the community. No prior pruning experience necessary; we welcome all skill levels! Note: This workshop is intended for ages 14 and up.
